Downwind dash.

The second edition of the downwind dash organized at the Lemmings water sports club was again a success and dominated as last year by the Cyprus-Wind Kitesurfing Pro Center instructors who managed to keep even the fastest windsurfers at bay in winds reaching 25 knots. A kitesurfing freestyle session followed which lasted till late in the afternoon.

I wanted to sail the Ladies mile salt lake for a long time.The rain we had this winter made it deep enough and the early departure of the flamingos that usually cover the area made it possible this year. After rigging in the mud the SBA police came to see what was happening. There curiosity past they watched me launch and drove off. They came back later after they realized that sailing the salt lake was forbidden but by then we where long gone. Very muddy but a lot of fun, carving in 10cm depth of perfectly flat water. It was like sailing the ground. My thanks go to buddies Panicos, Panayiotis, Christos and Savas for their invaluable help.
